Peaceful Tomorrows, a group of family members of those killed who have
turned their grief into peace advocacy - including calling for the
closing of Guantanamo. For more on their Forgiveness Project, an

"We are dedicated to true justice. In open and transparent court, we will again show the world who we
are: a fair and just people."

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
